Epithelial Resealing
[PROJECT] RESEAL - Epithelial Resealing
ID: 208631
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2014-10-31
Epithelia have the essential role of acting as a barrier that protects living organisms and its organs from the surrounding milieu. Therefore, it is crucial for epithelial tissues to have robust ways of maintaining its integrity despite the frequent damage caused by normal ce...

Migration and integration of GABAergic interneurons into the developing cerebral cortex: a transgenic approach
ID: 207807
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Inhibitory interneurons function as modulators of local circuit excitability. Their properties are of fundamental importance for normal brain function therefore understanding how these cells are generated during development may provide insight into neurodevelopmental disorder...

Physics and Applications of Graphene
ID: 207354
Start date: 2008-12-01, End date: 2013-10-31
This proposal is based on the PI’s recent work in which a conceptually new class of materials – two dimensional atomic crystals – was discovered. Such crystals can be seen as individual atomic planes “pulled out” of bulk crystals and were previously presumed not to exist in t...

The European and National Constitutional Law Project
ID: 207279
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-02-28
Irrespective of whether the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe or a Reform Treaty enters into force, the EU already has a constitution by all but name. But what does it rest on? Both the current treaties and the European Court of Justice often make reference to the...

Quantitative Evolution
[PROJECT] QUANTEVOL - Quantitative Evolution
ID: 206734
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
In the context of unprecedented anthropogenic forcing in the living world, the speed and mechanisms of evolution remain the key to many questions ranging from pathogens adaptation to the dynamics of biodiversity. To what extent can evolutionary theory make predictions? What w...

Growth control by the TOR signalling network
ID: 206173
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The Target Of Rapamycin (TOR) kinases reside in two distinct multi-protein complexes: TOR Complex 1 (TORC1), and TORC2. These two complexes are conserved among eukaryotes and function in signalling pathways that regulate different aspects of cell growth. By exploiting the fac...

Bridging continents across the sea: Multi-disciplinary perspectives on the emergence of long-distance maritime contacts in prehistory
ID: 206148
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2014-10-31
The role of the sea in drawing together peoples and cultures from distant places and continents in the historical period is readily apparent from textual sources and archaeological remains. In particular, and in contrast to the Atlantic, for example, which has served as a for...

Study of the role of protein posttranslational modification by SUMO (Small Ubiquitin-like MOdifier) in abscisic acid signaling and stress responses in plants
ID: 205927
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
Eukaryotic protein function is regulated in vivo by diverse mechanisms such as protein turnover, regulation of protein activity, localization and protein-protein interactions. These mechanisms involve constitutive or reversible post-translational modifications of specific ami...

Control of entangled electron spins on a chip
ID: 205896
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
The promise of nanoscience stems from the fundamentally new behavior that emerges at the nanoscale. Here, we propose to explore, control and exploit one of the most dramatic aspects of this unusual behavior: quantum entanglement of spins. Our nanoscale system of choice is an ...

Adipocyte Differentiation and Metabolic Functions in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
ID: 205641
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Obesity associated disorders such as T2D, hypertension and CVD, commonly referred to as the “metabolic syndrome”, are prevalent diseases of industrialized societies. Deranged adipose tissue proliferation and differentiation contribute significantly to the development of these...
